Never done it before -
best to do online or at the bookies?
Only ever been in once with my mate who got a free bet coupon out the Record. Place went a bit silent like a wild west saloon except with more nutters.
Use Betfair, you'll always get the best odds.
on a slow market the spreads can be awful. It depends on what you're betting on.
asking me if I maybe fancied gambling some more. It was kinda creepy. Bookies shouldn't act like weird stalkers.
Lesson: if you do go with Betfair: don't give them your number.
(never done it myself)
The sense of deaparation in there is really something else, and i enjoy watching lonely old people placing 50p bets on computerised horse racing. Was better when you could smoke but you can't have everything right?
